AT-ST painted for Star Wars: Legion!

Hey all!

Well, FINALLY a blog update, because I've FINALLY painted the darn AT-ST!

The posing of it was a bit tricky... I wanted it to look like it was in motion, because AT-STs look very cool when they are walking... awkward and spindly and cool:)

It wasn't too tough of a paint... several coats of successively light gray.  I enjoyed the weathering... brown and black inks, and some silver and brown-silver sponging to create a bit of chipping.

Next up, another group of Stormtroopers... and I ordered a set of Fleet Troopers and Scout Troopers to tackle next!

A friend selling a great OOP Praetorian army...

Hey all!

Thought I would share... a buddy of mine is regretfully selling his WAY OOP Praetorian army, complete with weapons teams and walkers and the like... so if you've always wanted a Praetorian army, now is the time!:)

A "Blood and Plunder" crew!

Hey all!

Holy COW it's been a LONG long time since I posted anything!

Did Historicon with the new company, and then GenCon, and it was LUNACY... but I was so damn tired, that I hadn't posted in ages!

Anyway... I thought I finally would:)

Anyway... I picked up this English crew for Blood and Plunder some time ago, and really wanted to get some paint on them.  I tried to keep them a bit motley, but also with a solid feel of a uniform... I limited the palette a bit, to try to achieve that.

Unfortunately I had my undercoat get grainy, which screwed things up, and then TWICE my varnish went misty... so it's been a process, and you will see some discolorations and texture in some bits and pieces.  I recovered them best I could.

Here is my boarding crew, ready to fight!

Here are my musketeers.

And here is Captain Winters!
